Hmm. Not sure about that. I always thought it was strange that IB devices started with port 1.

Are *we* (hwloc) supplying the port number, or are you getting it from /sys somewhere?

(/me reads the patch and ibdev2netdev...)

Ah, I see -- we're effectively doing the same thing as the ibdev2netdev script:

-----
port=$(cat /sys/class/net/$eth/dev_id)
port=$(printf "%d" $port)
port=$(( port + 1 ))

Hrm. I don't know if the +1 is a good assumption to make in general.
